Fruity, crisp and refreshing. Beautifully focused flavors of orange, pear, white peach and delicate nectarine mingle with pleasant oak accents. A mineral and honey aftertaste rounds out the long satisfying finish.
An amazingly versatile Chardonnay that goes well with poultry, pasta and even shellfish.
Another jazzy, Best Buy wine from Barnard Griffin, this 2011 Chardonnay should be sipped to the tune of Harry Nilsson's "Put The Lime In The Coconut," which neatly captures the flavors. Complex fruits, including apples, citrus - and yes, coconut-add up to a winr both sleek and satisfying, with toasted almonds rounding out the finish. Best Buy.
Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
